This session will align pelvic health bowel dysfunction and Its implications on the effects of thoracolumbar/ hip diagnosis in the general and athletic outpatient population. It is time to widen the screen and look at the convergent neurological factors that link spinal dysfunction to bowel health and present current research evidence and clinical practice guidelines to help clinicians recognize the implications of physiological drivers, and understand when to treat and when to refer. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.
